Good news is I am 34 wks. YeeHaw.
Bad news is I had to have blood work done yesterday to determine if I have Cholestasis of Pregnancy.
What is Cholestasis of Pregnancy:
Cholestasis of pregnancy is a rare condition that results from a liver problem. Roughly 2 percent of pregnant women may develop this condition, which occurs when bile fails to flow normally in the small ducts of the liver. This results in bile salt accumulation in the body and can cause excessive itching. This itching is more intense than other forms of itching. Some women scratch so severely they end up with small tears in the skin. (I am miserable. I feel like I have chicken pox without the pox or rash. Or better yet like I have creepy crawlies all over me)
This problem like many other pregnancy related skin conditions clears shortly after delivery. In some cases your doctor may recommend an early induction depending on the severity of your condition.
So. I am waiting for the results. But man I itch and nothing helps.
My insulin was yet again increased. I now have to go into the city twice a week for u/s for baby wellness and one time per week for the GD specialist.
I've been really depressed. miserable really physically and mentally. I feel like I am holding on by a thread. One moment I feel like I am getting used to what is thrown at me and then the next comes something else and I want to scream, kick and cry. SOB.
This pregnancy has been one of the most challenging things I have every gone through. I wish all the medical issues didn't take away from the excitement of having a little girl.
I am so scared that after she is born I will be more relieved then joyful to have her in my arms.
